Unfortunately, most filmstrips I have with a soundtrack are still under copyright. If I find any, I'll definitely post them.

"Trying New Things" doesn't have an accompanying soundtrack. You'll have to read-a-long at home.

Thanks for the filmstrip - these things are weird, thus cool.

Why this particular breed of .TIF for the file format?

These don't load properly into older versions of PAINT SHOP PRO, although they're okay in 8 and up. I use PSP6 becasue I didn't like the interface changes with 7.

Also, these images aren't of great original quality - they look like beat-up filmstrips with faded color. Why use a format that creates such large files? Very good JPEGs could be made at less than 100K per image, as compared to these .TIFs that approach a meg each.

Not complaining, just curious. Looking forward to more AV treats.

Thanks for the feedback.

I chose TIFs because of previous requests for that file format. The TIF has LZW compression which early versions of PSP might not support. In the future, I'll try to do it without compression.

I use uncompressed tiff's for photo editing and the file sizes are ridiculously large for trying to send over the net. I'd suggest using jpeg at 4:4:4 sampling and lowest compression. File size will be about one third or less and the quality difference irrelevant for this kind of resolution.

I did a batch conversion in IrfanView:
Zipped tif's: 38.7 MB
Jpegs: 13.7MB
A barely noticeable quality difference at 200% zoom.

Oh, and by the way this filmstrip was fun! More!

Like I said, most of the filmstrips with sound are still under copyright. Don't worry, I'm still looking though.
